Although this isn't as good as some of their other albums, it is still a classic. The remastered edition contains an extra song recorded by Bob when the Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie I was reported to have died. It is an excellent addition to this album, as Bob's voice sounds so emotional. By this point Pete Tosh and Bunny Wailer had left the band but a number of others had joined, including the I-threes, the new backing singers. The backing vocals by the I-threes on this album are excellent.
The album starts on a positive note with the great Positive Vibration and Roots,Rock,Reggae. Then the album takes on a more serious feel with the soulful Johnny Was. The vocals and synthezisers in this track really make it a classic. The next two tracks are of a very high standard, but are maybe the weakest two on the album. Crazy Baldhead is one of Bob's best songs in terms of the lyrics. Who The Cap Fit and Night Shift keep up the high standard before two more classic songs, War and Rat Race. The lyrics from War come from a speech by Haile Selassie I and is brilliant. The lyrics from Rat Race contain some of my favourite lines written by Bob.
"Don't forget your history
Know your destiny
In the abundance of water
The fool is thirsty."
